Meghan Markle was ‘lovely’ back in university says American Horror Story actress Lily Rabe

The prestigious Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois was once home to the Duchess of Sussex and fellow actress Lily Rabe. The latter, who has had a prolific career in Hollywood including ten years in the TV horror series American Horror Story recently shared some memories of her time in uni with Meghan Markle around twenty years ago.

“She was a few years ahead of me but yes, we had I believe the same acting teacher and met sort of early on when I was a freshman,” Rabe told 9Honey.

“I was introduced by our acting teacher that she would show me the ropes and show me around campus a little bit, and she was very lovely.”

The actress added that she has seen Meghan since graduating “but not in a while.”

The Duchess attended Northwestern from 1999 to 2003, finishing a year prior to Lily Rabe’s graduation.

The American Horror Story star graduated and went on to star opposite Al Pacino on Broadway before getting into television and film.

Meghan holds a joint Bachelor of Arts degree in theatre and international relations.

“I had always been the theatre nerd at Northwestern University.

“I knew I wanted to do acting, but I hated the idea of being this cliché: a girl from LA who decides to be an actress.

“I wanted more than that, and I had always loved politics, so I ended up changing my major completely, and double-majoring in theatre and international relations,” the Duchess told Marie Claire in 2013.

“By my junior year I had finished most of my credits, and I applied for an internship at the US Embassy, so I ended up working in the embassy in Buenos Aires for a few months.

“It was during their economic devaluation and our Secretary of the Treasury at the time, Paul O’Neill, was there.

“So I’m 20 years old, in Buenos Aires, in a motorcade, doing that whole thing.

“I thought for sure I would still have a career in politics.”

The same university connects not only Markle and Rabe but also Princess Diana.

Before Meghan joined the institution, back in 1996, her future mother-in-law Lady D visited the school and helped raise almost one million dollars.

She was photographed months after wearing the university purple jumper.

‘Such a lovely moment!’ Princess Eugenie reveals Philip got to meet her son before death

Princess Eugenie, 31, was able to introduce her baby boy August Philip Hawke to her grandfather Prince Philip after whom he was named. Baby August was born in February just weeks before the Duke of Edinburgh died on April 9.

Speaking in the BBC documentary Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers which aired on Wednesday night Eugenie said: “We named August, August Philip because grandpa had been such a huge, inspiring character in my life.

“I brought little August to come and meet him and told him that we’d named him after him and it was such a lovely moment.

“We were very lucky to do that.”

During the documentary, Eugenie also spoke of how she shared a passion for art with the late Duke who was known to enjoy watercolour painting.

Philip died at Windsor Castle just months before he was due to celebrate his 100th birthday on June 10.

Eugenie was among royals including Prince William, Prince Harry, Princess Anne and Prince Charles to pay tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh in the special programme.

Jane McDonald’s ‘lovely commute to a restaurant’ from her river cruise – ‘like in Venice'

Although theirs wasn’t a proper gondola, as Jane would have liked, it’s a very similar way to commute to that they use in the city of canals.

In Venice, big boats can’t get on the narrow canals, and gondolas have to take tourists to the city centre.

As opposed to what many people think, residents of the Italian city don’t use gondolas to move around.

It is reported that although there are only a few hundred gondolas left in Venice, almost none of them are used as private transport by local Venetian families.
